United States and N Korean leaders to visit each other's countries

In good spirits Kim Jong-un walks with Donald Trump during a break in talks

"After the luncheon, the top leaders had a walk, deepening friendly feelings", the KCNA reported, calling the summit an "epoch-making meeting".

"Getting a good picture everybody?"

Mr Trump said scrapping them will save a "tremendous amount of money", but he added that they could be reinstated if co-operation from the North declines.

With his mouth agape, Kim's reaction to the remark appeared to be that of shock.

The former White House homeland security adviser to President Donald Trump told ABC's Powerhouse Politics podcast that in the wake of the historic Trump-Kim summit, America "got what the president sought". "No more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research!" he also tweeted.

Aviv said the U.S "use [s] chemical tests and biological tests as opposed to someone having to taste the food".

News of the decision to halt the drills stoked concern in Japan, with Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera calling joint exercises and the US military presence in South Korea "vital" to East Asian security.

As part of the growing detente, the KCNA report also said that Kim had invited Trump to visit Pyongyang, an offer that the USA president had accepted. North Korea also wants an end to what it considers America's "hostile policy" and a security guarantee that the US will not seek to remove the regime.

"The President's comments [were] very positive and the Statement touches on a new relationship with North Korea, and end to the Korean War, complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and recovering POW/MIA remains - all positive commitments", he said.

North Korea blamed botulism and ingestion of a sleeping pill and dismissed torture claims.

The account Wednesday in the official Rodong Sinmun newspaper could signal the first rift with President Trump over the perceived path forward with the North's leader, Kim Jong Un.

"Without Otto this would not have happened", Trump told a post-summit news conference in Singapore. "But today, we are showing our dignity as an independent nation in front of the whole world", said Lieutenant-Colonel Hwang Myong Jin. "Because it does not meet what I would call minimum requirements in terms of what we expect them to do and what they expect us to do".

Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, who served as a top US negotiator with Pyongyang before the last attempt at diplomacy broke down in 2009, was more optimistic.

As the two flags hung side-by-side in the backdrop for the first time ever, both Kim and Trump expressed hope that their summit would be fruitful. A spokesman for Moon said the government needed more information "to understand" Trump's intentions.

But the South Carolina Republican said Trump would face opposition to any move to withdraw American forces from South Korea. It's a resounding success for Kim - and one that is likely to be exploited back home for political objective.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the US and South Korea", Japan's defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said.

The U.S. president addressed criticism of his meeting with Kim, writing that "a year ago the pundits & talking heads, people that couldn't do the job before, were begging for reconciliation and peace- "please meet, don't go to war".

Trump called the exercises "very provocative" and "inappropriate" in light of the optimistic opening he sees with North Korea. "I think he's going to start now", he said.
